Beware of heart racing

One of the strongest caffeine to kick start your morning especially after a late night sleep.

Beware of heart racing if you are sensitive to caffeine

So far one of the strongest. I have to add one more bar of water in order get the right taste for me. Overall a very good jump start in the morning after late night sleep.

More intensity needed

I am a coffee addict and use a Nescafe machine at work while at home, I use the Nepresso machine. While both machines are equally user friendly, Nescafe capsules range is sorely lacking in intensity. Ristretto Ardenza so far seems to marry well a better intensity as well as flavor (as compared to other capsules). Still looking forward to other new introductions to rival those of Nespresso.

Fabulously STRONG Espresso that lingers in the mouth after a shot.

much better than the Grande Intenso.

One of my favourite

This is an intense coffee which I like to mix it up with steam milk. The rich flavour blends well with milk and gives me a nice cup of latte. The coffee gives out a nice chocolaty aftertaste!

The Real Taste Of Coffee

This is what I really want for the real taste of coffee in my life.... rich and smooth...

Review by Joey Teo (Posted on 10/06/2016)
just what the doctor ordered

I was always relatively happy with the Intenso but this is like wow ... so smooth, so nice the after taste. Coffee does not appear to give me a kick, so for me, it is all about the flavour and especially the after taste, and this hits all of the buttons. I would have given it a 10 if I could

Review by Bob (Posted on 04/06/2016)

This is the strongest coffee yet from Nescafe and it definitely gives you a kick in the morning when you need it most. However, I feel that Nescafe should have a wider variety for pure coffee because its range is seriously lacking as compared to Nespresso. I am considering switching to Nespresso since Nescafe seems to specialise in milk-based coffee and I am lactose intolerant, and I would love to have more varieties to choose from to help me get through the day.
